You may have seen the recent news coverage about AAUP identifying some problematic practices restricting academic freedom of Purdue Global faculty and students. These include the Non-Disclosure Agreement faculty were expected to sign (which was then dropped with the help of AAUP and faculty pressure), and the forced arbitration to which students are expected to submit (which is still operating).

We are scheduling a special meeting on Thursday, October 4 ahead of our routine fall chapter meeting to discuss and pass an AAUP chapter resolution and to encourage the Senate to do the same on these and related matters, in coordination with AAUP chapters at Purdue Northwest and Fort Wayne. We need your thoughts and suggestions for revision, and your voice in voting on the resolution. There are lots of perspectives that need consideration on this issue.

Please RSVP to the October 4th meeting here here.

We will meet from 5-6 pm in STEW 102. Please put this on your calendar now, let us know you will join us, and let your colleagues know too. You do not need to be an AAUP member to attend, but you will need to be a paid member to vote.  You can join or renew here.

Thank you!

AAUP Mission

The mission of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) is to advance academic freedom and shared governance; to define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education; to promote the economic security of faculty, academic professionals, graduate students, post‐doctoral fellows, and all those engaged in teaching and research in higher education; to help the higher education community organize to make our goals a reality; and to ensure higher education's contribution to the common good.

Bottom right block

The AAUP strongly opposes Donald Trump's unconstitutional and discriminatory ban on entry into the United States for people from some Muslim-majority countries.

Large numbers of our students and faculty members are affected by administration’s ill-considered executive order, which violates so many American traditions and beliefs. We fear that the abuse of power we are witnessing will wreak havoc on our institutions of higher education.

We call on faculty, students, and all citizens to remain engaged in the struggle for justice on every campus and in every community. We call on all reasonable politicians to oppose against this administration’s discriminatory order. Add your name in solidarity.
